Our first full day in Prague! We woke up to a beautiful day today. The Old Town Square was quiet in the early morning. We enjoyed a nice breakfast at the hotel before making our way across the river and up to Prague Castle (via tram 22). The castle is HUGE and quite a sight to see. Within the castle walls is St. Vitus Cathedral, which was the first …
We arrived in Prague around 6 p.m. today. It was quite an adventure getting through the Old Town to the hotel. Our hotel, the Grand Hotel Praha, is on the Old Town Square. As there are no cars allowed in the square, our GPS took us to an alleyway in back of the hotel. The hotel staff were kind enough to bring a trolley out to the van and wheel our …
Hello It's now Friday and we are once again on an EzyJet flight, this time to London Stansted, just outside of London in Essex. We spent the last two nights in an amazing hotel on the Old Town Square in Prague. On arriving at the airport Jeff went to get some cash as they use Czech Krowns as their currency (not changing over to the Euro till next …

There are impressive medieval gates on both sides of the bridge, and as you walk through onto the bridge, you see Prague Castle on the other side rising up on the hill in brown, orange, terra cotta and other beautiful warm and earthen shades.

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Praha Prague
This is an amazing hotel. Not only is the location absolutely brilliant in its centrality (and for people watching--right on the square), but the rooms are incredible. We especially loved the beautiful hard wood floors, carved bed and tables, those lovely European individual feather beds that envelope you, the separate rooms for tub/sink and shower/toilet/bidet, two huge armoires, and the sauna upstairs. And the free channel of adult programming, but don't tell anyone. Our room faced the astronomical clock, but despite the crowds, the noise level in our room was next to zero. We also got an amazing rate (4 nights for the price of 3), which put it at less than half the average rate posted here on Trip Advisor. We will never stay anywhere else in Prague if we can help it. They packed breakfasts for us the morning we were driven to the airport in a spacious Mercedes by a large, handsome bouncer-looking fellow decked out in a great suit (at 5 in the morning, nice), even taking into account that we had drunk every bottle of sparkling water in the minibar--they packed us two huge bottles, which subtly illustrates the extremely high level of customer service at this establishment. The Grand Hotel Praha has the best hotel breakfast spread I have ever experienced, bar none, and the first floor is a beautiful patisserie and gelato cafe (which means the whole hotel smells like a fresh, warm pastry). And since the whole square outside the hotel is filled with outdoor cafes, even at night and in the winter (heaters and umbrellas!), it was the perfect place for a nightcap before walking 200 feet to our room. Amazing, and totally romantic.
We cannot say enough good things about the hotel. There is no way you can get the better location and view in Prague as the hotel is located just opposite the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square.
If you should go to Old Town Square be sure to stay at The Grand
for - the view, the ambience, the food, the rooms and the staff. We had a most memorable stay in this lovely hotel overlooking the Astronomical Clock and Old Town Square. I admit that usually we are quite hard to please but this time we really couldn't find anything to complain about. Thank you to everyone who made us so welcome. The driver who collected us from the airport, the guide (pre-booked through TravelCook) the wonderful Ballet at The State Opera booked through Pragueexperience followed by supper at a fantastic restaurant). My advice to anyone is - do yourself a favour and contact the experts it is worth every penny you pay (which actually wasn't that much. Final thankyou to Tomas at travelCook - you are a star! We left our hearts in Prague - we will be back.
this hotel was great, our party stayed here and at its sister hotel apostolistic residence for 7 nights from 29th November last year when we got married we booked 10 rooms and were given a discount of 10% and we were upgraded free of charge to the best room in the hotel (only in my opinion) it was huge and overlooking the clock which is supposed to cost extra, the bed was the biggest i have ever seen and the bathroom was simply great.
As far as location goes, this couldn't be bettered. The reasonable cost of the hotel makes this a star find. The staff were most helpful and the rooms were clean and cosy. Our only criticism was that we were in room 216, which, whilst it doesn't overlook the square was noisy due to an air conditioning unit outside the window and the fact that the room overlooked the courtyard used by kitchen staff. Whilst this doesn't sound terrible, it was very audible at night and did disturb our sleep. Nevertheless, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel and would just suggest that you request a room with a view of the square.
Lovely views of Christmas Market
We stayed for two nights at the Grand Hotel on our second visit to Prague. We had lovely views of Old Town Square and the Christmas Market . Our room (215) was directly opposite the clock and we weren't disturbed at all (very efficient double glazing). Great cakes in the coffee shop!
A perfect hotel choice!
My Mother and I just arrived home from a fantastic five day vacation in Prague, where we thoroughly enjoyed our accomodations at the Grand Hotel Prague. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast offerings were varied and delicious, the room was large and spotless, and the location was perfect for us to explore most areas by foot. The availability of free internet was also a pleasant surprise. We had considered staying at many different hotels in various areas of town and at various price levels. In retrospect, we made an excellent hotel choice and would highly recommend the Grand Hotel Prague on the old Town Square.
Great Hotel! Great location!
We spent 7 nights at this wonderful small hotel right on Old Town Square. (22 rooms with elevator) In fact our room looked out directly on to the Clock at the Town Hall. Rooms are furnished with antiques; baths are modern and well equipt; great breakfast included each morning. The staff was so very helpful and tried their best to be of service at every opportunity. This was a very confortable stay and I would highly recommend this establishment. It is relatively new and I am sure it will be much in demand in the months to come.
My wife and I returned yesterday ( 29th August 2005 ) after a great weekend in Prague. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Praha in the Old Town with a view opposite the Astronomical Clock. The hotel room was excellent having been recently modernised. The staff were all extremely helpful and we would happily stay at the hotel again. The breakfast included in the price was exceptional and set us up for the day. The view of the Astronomical Clock and resultant crowds on the hour provided additional entertainment. A cautious note the Clock strikes on the hour. ( 24 Hours a day ). Whilst this did not bother me my wife found it kept her awake. Also the cake shop on the ground floor whilst it served delicious cakes it was the most expensive coffee we had in Prague. £3 a cup. All in all though we would highly recommend the hotel for other visitors to Prague.
